An Eternal Gift
As a transfer student coming into Georgia Tech, I instantly felt as if I was all alone. I had many feelings that entered into my mind and I wondered if this was the right school for me. A couple of days passed and I began to know my roommates and other fellow hall members. Hardly a week went by before I received a phone call from Christian Students. I wondered how it was that they knew me and how they received my number. As I pondered on this matter, I remembered that I had received a postcard in the mail from Christian Students while I was at home a little before coming into Tech. As I filled that card out, I knew that I needed a place where I could learn more about Christ, but I thought that I would never hear anything back from them. I really thank God that I did take a few seconds out to fill that card out. It has been the best decision that I have ever made.
While being a part of Christian Students, I have learned more in two years than I have ever learned in my former years of being a Christian. I have learned what it really means to be a believer in Christ, and to have Christ dwell in me. I now know that there is no situation that I cannot handle while I am enjoying Christ as the one who covers all of my situations. It has been a ride here at Tech, but one that I can say was worth going on.
I expect a future life of pursuing Christ but I also have a lifetime gift that will last for eternity--my experience of what it is to be with Christians pursuing the Lord. If I never received anything else from Georgia Tech, I can still say that transferring here was the best decision, because here I found the Lord. I just really thank God that there is such a genuine group of Christians focused on preaching the gospel to young people like myself.
Philippians 4:6-7: In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made know to God; And the peace of God, which surpasses every manís understanding, will guard your hearts and thoughts in Christ Jesus.
